The Democrats’ new rallying cry calling for the abolition of U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE) ‘is a call for anarchy,” Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) warned Tuesday.

“It’s the way countries end and a new dictatorship begins,” Gohmert explained in an interview on Fox Business Channel

“It’s a call for anarchy. And, it’s amazing that it has caught on and has been spreading even among what were thought to be mainstream Democrats. I mean, it’s insane. If you don’t have borders, you don’t have a country.

“And, when you’re a welfare state, like the U.S. has become, it is just a giant sucking sound from all over the world.

“You can’t control it, and it means anarchy. It means might makes right and then that, ultimately, leads to a totalitarian dictator coming in and rounding up the military, taking over.

“It’s the way countries end and a new dictatorship begins. You call for anarchy, and then you get a dictator.”

Rep. Gohmert was incredulous that so many Americans are willing to “be such foolish servants of those who want a dictator, who want a totalitarian government,” since the only way to have socialism is through force:

“It’s unbelievable that people that are so ignorant, they’ll be such foolish servants of those who want a dictator, want a totalitarian government. And, that’s the only way you can have socialism. You have to force people – to take from those according to their ability and give to those according to their need – it takes a totalitarian government to make that work.”
